Empire: Total War Discussion
I really, really enjoy the basic game that Empire: Total War is, but honestly what really made all the Total War games fun for me were the awesome mods that greatly improved game play as a whole.
If you don't know about it already, I suggest everyone check out www.twcenter.net.
All sorts of modders there and tons of awesome changes.
The Empire: Total War specific forum can be found here:
If you want to edit game files and change unit stats, costs, upkeep, etc, the program to use can be found here:
I used that to take off upkeep of all units and to take off the recruitment caps on special units like Hessian Line Infantry. I also made Hessians more elite. All it took was a few clicks and a save. Better yet, it's compatible with saved games so you don't have to restart your campaign.
If you want a great mod check out DarthMod:
He really made combat and overall AI performance significantly better. Battles are a lot more fun and his mod is only in 0.5 version so there are tons of improvements to come. Again, easy to use because all you do is follow the installation instructions and it's compatible with saved games. As he updates it, I just replace the old version with the new and my on-going campaign improves.
I hope this helps improves everyone's gaming experience.
E:TW is amazingly better for me now.
